Yes, we know, exercising and dieting may be hard sometimes and you may feel like quitting. This article is designed to make your new fitness habits much more productive with the best 3 motivational tips that will keep you going to the gym and dieting with a smile on your face every time.
Can you see yourself walking down the street at your favorite location looking and feeling great? Or as you stroll down the beach and you notice people glance over their shoulders to admire your beautiful ripped? A perfect body will have you feeling so self-confident that your vacation will be like a dream.
Everyone would love to have six pack abs and be healthy. Can everyone archive this goal? Yes. We people were created for excellence, so yes, anything is possible. Although some may find it difficult to reach personal goals, anything is possible if you have an optimistic and positive outlook on life.
You can begin your day feeling very positive, but by the end of it, if you are not fully focused on your objective you can be a victim of procrastination. As humans, we tend to enjoy the path of least resistance, justifying our delays and procrastinating our objectives. Nobody said that being disciplined was easy. As a matter of fact, here are some examples of things we tell ourselves, things that keep us from hitting our goals: “I would love to workout, but I don’t want to be sore for tomorrow’s barbeque.”, “I have a free day this weekend therefore I will stuff my face with cookies and milk.”, “I love the gym, I just don’t have time to go anymore.” Sounds familiar? If yes, you really need to read on.
The interesting thing is that we make ourselves believe such things. The secret to success is not overworking but being in control of your thinking manner and outlook on life. Whether you are looking to lose a few pounds or get in shape for a bodybuilding competition, don’t come up with any excuses. Here are some helpful mindsets that will help when you get back on track when you feel like procrastinating:
- Always tell your friends and family about your goals. Telling your acquaintances about your goals is great. Some will take you serious and some won’t. But the reasoning behind this is that they can help you be on track or…make you feel ashamed if you don’t. Either way, you’ll be one step close to your goal.
- Set goals with a partner or friend. Having a workout partner or a dieting partner will make things better for everyone. Besides a little competition, a little encouragement from a workout buddy makes a huge difference. Pick someone that you enjoy being with and someone that you know will help you when you feel a bit down. Friends are incredible at picking us up and making us feel great. Well, at least some of them.
- Write down your aspirations. Get a notepad right now and write down all of your goals and aspirations. On a piece of paper make a line down the middle. On one side put your “goals” and the other put the “aspirations” (example. Goal #1 Lose 10 pounds this month. Aspiration #1 Lose 10 pounds so I can buy a new pair of jeans). Make sure they are in detail and also try to make them very personal. When you are at your lowest in energy, pull out your sheet and read those out loud. Might sound kind of weird but it works. Professional athletes do it everyday. Why not you?
Getting in top shape is harder than it looks. It takes discipline and full commitment. But don’t worry, weeklyfit.com is right by your side, helping you with tips and tricks!
